WaiversSeveral kinds of tuition waivers are available to Roxbury Community College students. These waivers include, but are not limited to, members of the National Guard, veterans, senior citizens, Native Americans, state employees, and wards of the state. In order to receive a tuition waiver, you must present the waiver at the time of registration or before the first day of class. If you present the waiver after the first day of class, the College will make no adjustment. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts does not fund all courses; therefore, the use of certain waivers for those unfunded courses will be restricted.
Students with approved tuition waivers, tuition remissions, or tuition vouchers may register on a space-available basis, and fees must be paid. Tuition waivers, tuition remission or tuition vouchers do not apply to special programs, seminars or private instruction administered by the Corporate and Community Education. Also, certain tuition waivers, which apply to the state-supported Day Division, may not apply or be reduced for Division of Continuing Education programs (credit courses).
